Starter for 1968 200D

My dad had it rebuilt a few years ago. I can't seem to find one anywhere. I ordered one online that said it fit my vehicle, but that was of course too good to be true. This is my daily driver and put me in a storm of a bind. Does anyone know where I can get one? Will most starter/alternator shops be able to rebuild it? Or what vehicles are compatible? Any help is greatly appreciated!!

If you put your location (and car) in your profile we may be able to find a shop in your area.


I dunno, look to be a lot of them available...

Let me know

I adjusted my profile, I'll put a pic of the car and stuff shortly. Happy to be part of the forum/enthusiasts. I believe the starter posted is the one I ordered.

Starter

The bolt holes line up, but the starter is clearly much smaller, has a smaller driver gear with fewer teeth, and one of the mounting holes is threaded. The one you posted looks like the correct one, but I wouldn't be able to tell unless I saw them side by side and I don't have money or time to spend on another wrong part. The mounting stud on the solenoid is not at an angle on mine either, but that could be irrelevant.

When looking for a starter, be aware there are two 1968 200D models, as Mercedes did a midyear body change. The early year model used the W110 body with the OM621 engine. The later year used the W115 body with the OM615 engine. Starters are likely different. The W110 starter for sure has two through holes for mounting and I'm pretty sure the gear is different between the two. If it is the W110 body, best to say it is a 1967 to avoid the confusion, or a 1969 if a W115 body.

Also, if it is a W110, the mounting stud may or may not be at an angle on the solenoid. There were design changes, but the whole starter is still interchangeable. Also, the connection for the wire from the switch could be a screw terminal with spade connector, or a "pinch" style with a wire that is just stripped of insulation.

If you can find a shop that rebuilds starters, which are getting harder to find, that is definitely an option.

KCM Thanks!

I appreciate the info. I had already had a shop that wanted $300 to rebuild it, but I was running low on options. I also found a used one for $50 plus $15 shipping which fits and functions properly, so I guess I'll have a rebuilt one on hand for the future. Thanks again for the info! I knew that my dad had some confusion as to why many parts ordered for a 1968 weren't correct, so for most things engine, I will just call it a 67'.

May want to do the same for the body as well. Later 1968 models were the newer body style. What adds more confusion is that some other parts also changed on the late W110 body depending on the serial number, evidently to start implementing parts used on the next generation. These include the outside mirror, interior door handles, steering wheel, steering column, and at least some parts on the front seat such as the back recline mechanism.
